minister benjamin netanyahu is more interested in on the ground than a two-state solution. we shall wait and see if president barack obama, this great american, would invest serious political capital in brokering a peace settlement between two camps. >> and how interested are the palestinians and abbas in a two-state solution? i was reading this week. he was writing that this term work the-state solution, is a real fallacy. for many reasons, one of which is because palestinian authority does not actually want a two-state solution. abbas has written before that he would never recognize israel's authority. and as you know, i'm sure, two-state solutions have been brokered and offered, 1937, '47, 2000, 2008, all denied. on the part of the palestinian authority. so is obama's quest for a two-state solution naive? >> the palestinians have repeatedly stressed that they believe in a two-state solution. abbas, the palestinian leader has made it clear that a settlement must be based on a two-state solution. a secure and viable jewish state and a viable independent palestinian state. >> but israel

east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? tha
, the president's meeting with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu focused on another threat to israel in the region. it runs nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world, and potentially an threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> richard, help somebody out at home who is watching this. the president of the united states goes into hamas and allies decide to fire missiles into israel which they do all the time. can you explain why they would act and continue to act in a way that is against their best interests? >> for groups like hamas, you know, their title represents what they are. they are the islamic resistant movement. this for he them is station identification. this is the way that they essentially say we have a better path for dealing with the israelis. >> no peace? no peace? >> well, peace -- not a negotiated peace. certainly not a peace on the terms of being discussed by israel or the united states. >> not a peace tha
to broker an apology from prime minister benjamin netanyahu to the prime minister of turkey and that was accepted, which was a question mark as to how they would deal with it. now he have a chance to see the normalization of turkish-israeli relationship because the turmoil in syria is right between turkey and israel. turkey and israel border jordan, and if turkey and israel can work better together on a common interest, maybe that will help. >> shepard: it has the refugee problem jordan is dialing with, maybe in larger numbers. >> exactly. >> shepard: what is your sense -- are we in a much better place today than two days ago? beg picture? >> the middle east, one step forward, two steps back. we saw that today in terms of what is happening in syria. it's only occasionally some good things happen. but i think the president has done good. first of all by convincing the israelis' public that he is in their corner. for four years they got a different message from him and that complicated the relationship. it works much better when the united states and israel-working together ra
benjamin netanyahu issuing a stunning apology to the turkish prime minister for this, an israeli commando attack that killed nine people on a gaza bound flotilla nearly three years ago. our senior international correspondent ivan watson is now joining us from amman, jordan. your base in turkey right now. i have to tell you for all of the things the president may have done over the past 48, 72 hours on this trip to the middle east, clearly the most productive is healing this, at least getting the start of a healing process between these two u.s. allies, turkey and israel. >> certainly president obama putting a diplomatic feather in his cap by basically getting these two very important middle eastern allies of the u.s., turkey and israel, to talk to each other. the two prime ministers in a phone call, prime minister benjamin netanyahu of israel calling his turkish counterpart from the tarmac basically of the airport with the u.s. president alongside him and basically bringing an end to nearly three years of ruptured relations between these two very important middle eastern powers. the israe
to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his adolescent child saying -- >> was it too paternalistic? >> no, in that sense, saying we'll always have your back, but you have to take your future in your hands. we're not going to be there to do that for you. this is your last wake-up call. or will there be steps to follow? this i'm not sure, because i mea
. personally with benjamin netanyahu, in a bigger sense with the whole nation and he seemed to tilt away from the palestinians and toward the israelis, he's no longer going to insist that israel stop the creation, or the construction of settlements as a pre-condition to peace talks. so, you know, it may be a b, b-plus, no great accomplishment, but certainly an okay trip. >> clayton: to elaborate on that point, was this an overtly pro-israel trip? pressure on syria, pressure on iran standing with israel or did you see it differently? >> in terms of syria and iran shall the president has been opposed to those two regimes for a long time, but in terms of where he comes down on the issues separating the israelis and palestinians, he's tilted as opposed to the first term, towards the palestinians and israelis. in a personal sense, it was a charm offensive between himself and benjamin netanyahu. and the fact he was going to get him there to the prime minister and the aid on the ship that was trying to break the israeli blockade three years ago, that was a significant event. >> jesse: and chris, you
in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us su
